Welcome to Ormiston Bridge Academy. We provide education for up to 50 Key Stage 3 and 4 children and 14 primary aged children from the borough of Hammersmith and Fulham. Those who attend our academy are at risk of or excluded from mainstream school.
Children come to our school via the following routes:
Many of our children have social, emotional and mental health needs, in addition to learning needs. We believe that success for our young people comes as a result of our specialist approach, we are interested in activities that develop all of our young peoples’ capabilities; rekindling engagement in academia to develop lifelong learning, developing potential for employability, developing the ability to have successful healthy relationships and ensuring that all have the knowledge and skills to be able to make safe life choices. We believe that through this approach we support our children, enhancing their quality of life and promoting the realisation of their aspirations.

For this reason we take into account our young peoples’ education experiences to date, their social emotional health and mental health, their family situation and experiences and their special educational need (SEN) needs prior to joining our school. We work closely with professionals, families and other practitioners to affect change in our young peoples’ lives, ensuring our work is holistic and therefore creates success by any means for all of our children. Whilst success may be varied for our children, we are proud of the work that we do and the environment of our school which is caring supportive and inclusive.
“Pupils enjoy coming to Ormiston Bridge. Staff work closely with pupils. They find out about their needs and the barriers to learning they may have had at their previous schools. Pupils said that they know the staff care about them and their well-being.”Ofsted September 2021
